Organisers Of Music Reality Shows Are Required By Law To Get License From Us - GHAMRO Reechoes



The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) Abraham Adjatey in recent times reiterated the need for organisers of music reality shows to get license from them before allowing contestants to perform songs.

Speaking with Nana Kwame, host of OC Showbiz Review Show on Skyy Power 93.5 FM in Takoradi monitored by Ghanaprex.com, Agya Abraham as he is affectionately called, reechoed that, organisers should understand that, they do not have rights to the songs and so, they have to get a license as it's required by law

Consequently, he added that organisers are required to come to GHAMRO, detail the number of songs, state whether the show would be commercialized and sponsors behind the show so that profit generated are split and then distributed to all the original owners who had their songs used.

He asserted that, events organizers pay for intellectual property works they use for their events.

Meanwhile, The Administrator and GHAMRO as a royalty collection agency within Ghana that represents the rights of music copyright holders have over the years taken up the initiative to ensure that registered members of the collective society receive what they are due from their music works.

The Ghana Music Rights Organisation was created under section 49 of the Copyright Law, Act 690 of 2005. The agency collects royalties for all rights owners in Ghana.
